Abstract

The method of auxiliary sources is employed to model and analyze probe-fed hemispheroidal dielectric resonator antennas and arrays. Circularly polarized antenna elements of different designs are analyzed, and impedance bandwidths of up to 14.7% are achieved. Selected element designs are subsequently employed in a seven-element phased array. The array performance is analyzed with respect to scan loss and main beam directivity as a function of scan angle and frequency, and the influence of element separation is investigated.
